    Victor Brauner, born in Romania, left for Paris with the rise of fascism, and embraced surrealism.  In 1937 he painted ‘The City I Dream’ in which he takes us into a Giorgio De Chirico-inspired metaphysical cityscape, complete with distorted perspective. #surrealism #metaphysicalart #giorgiodichirico #victorbrauner #art #artofinstagram

    From @ecojusticeradio_ 
An agreement announced in November 2020 paves the way for demolition of four hydroelectric dams on the Lower Klamath River, the largest dam demolition in U.S. history. This would reopen hundreds of miles of waterway along the Oregon-California border to Chinook Salmon restoration, critical and sacred to tribes but have dwindled to almost nothing in recent years.  In this episode, Regina Chichizola, Co-Director of Save California’s Salmon and Sammy Gensaw, a Yurok fisherman, youth activist & Director of Ancestral Guard, share the heartbreaking and inspiring 20-year journey to undam the Klamath River, which has suffered from low water flows, toxic algal blooms, and fish populations that now face extinction, parasites and disease.  The Yurok and Karuk tribes and others, along with fishing groups and environmentalists had hoped to see demolition work begin as soon as 2022. The latest plan makes Oregon and California equal partners in the demolition with a nonprofit entity, called the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, and adds $45 million to the project’s $450 million budgets. Oregon, California and the utility PacifiCorp, which operates the hydroelectric dams and is owned by billionaire Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway, will each provide one-third of the additional funds -- and the Klamath will once again be dam-free.

    Hundreds of paintings believed to be up to 20,000 years old on rock faces in the 3 million hectare Chiribiquete national park of the Amazonas region of Colombia keep getting “rediscovered” by outsiders.

The once populous Karijona Tribe most likely painted these masterpieces, and continue to live uncontacted in the vast rainforest, and anthropologists and explorers have studied the region for hundreds of years. #colombia #karijonatribe #rockart #chiribiquete #petroglyphs

    TUNE IN as @ecojusticeradio_ presents Part 2 of our special Four-Part series on “Rise of the Amazon Defenders.”  In this episode, we investigate the story of New York based attorney Steven Donziger who represented Ecuadorian communities demanding justice from Chevron-Texaco for one of the largest-ever oil disasters, where they deliberately dumped more than 16 billion gallons of toxic wastewater, spilled 17 million gallons of crude oil, and left hazardous waste in hundreds of open pits dug out of the forest floor. In an historic judgement, #Chevron was found liable by Ecuadorian courts and ordered to pay $9.5 billion.  Chevron says it will never pay. Instead, they launched an extraordinary racketeering and extortion lawsuit against the Ecuadorian and U.S. attorneys, and various consultants, including @amazonwatch alleging they were all lying about Chevron's pollution and that the entire case was "sham litigation." Chevron has turned our guest Steven Donziger into a corporate political prisoner, placed under house arrest, bankrupt, disbarred.  We look into how Chevron, supported by US federal judges, is using retaliatory attacks against Mr. Donziger and the Ecuadorian Peoples, and how their actions set a dangerous precedent and represent a growing and serious threat to the ability of civil society to hold corporations accountable for their misdeeds around the world.

    Let’s all take a hint from Edoardo Manet, and think peace, beauty. He became one of the most notorious painters in Paris when several of the controversial works he exhibited in the 1863 Salon des Refusés shocked the public with their bold treatment of form, color, space, and sexually oriented themes. In the summer of the following year, perhaps seeking relief from the harsh criticism he had received, Manet left Paris for Boulogne-sur-Mer, a city on the northern Atlantic coast of France, where he painted marine subjects and still lifes of fish. Think lilies, boats, fish today.  Steamboat leaving Boulogne - by
